What is your biggest criticism of the candidate you plan on voting for?

The tinderbox, like most of America, is pretty divided politically, so I want to hear your own complaints against the person you plan on voting for. Presidential or gubernatorial. I am not locked in 100% yet, but I am leaning towards Obama and McCrory.

Biggest Criticism of Obama: Extending the Patriot Act and signing the 2012 NDAA with provisions about indefinite detention without trial. Pretty sure Obama campaigned against the Patriot Act (maybe not) and I feel the government is encroaching on personal rights with both of these policies.

Biggest Criticism of McCrory: Advocated for Amendment 1. I haven't done as much research on the gubernatorial candidates, but I know McCrory was in favor of Amendment 1 which I wholly oppose.

Romney - Mormon book salesmen knocking on my door shaking their behinds trying to sell me the Book if Mormon.

His stance on abortion and gay marriage as well. Government should stay out of individual/religion based decisions. But, Obama is a joke and sucks major donkey ass so Romney is the only choice.

[b]Obama:[/b] Tries too hard to please everyone when he should realize the GOP will never work with him no matter what and act accordingly.

[b]McCrory:[/b] He supports voter I.D. laws, which I oppose very strongly. This may yet prevent me from voting for him, I honestly haven't decided yet.

Romney- Not a fan of some of his mixed stances but given Obumas proven track record of massive and complete failure this can be easily overlooked.

McCrory- Can't say that I disagree with any of his policys, Besides Bev Purdue is terrible.

State politics are of a smaller importance, My distaste for Purdue is mostly for her ruining the bar scene with her anti smoking laws...

And yes I do vote Republican 90% of the time as I have no love for the left.

[indent=1]Romney has discussed increasing the defense budget to 4% of GDP, half a percent higher than it is scheduled to be in the 2012/2013 budget. With the war in Iraq over and Afghanistan winding down, 3.5 is probably sufficient. [/indent]

I'm a republican but will probably vote for Obama this year. Bottom line is when you vote, choose the candidate that you feel best satisfies your most important concerns. Don't vote because of your party affiliation.

I believe if you vote for Obama, our economy slides further back and if you vote for Romney, we slide further back as a society.

BTW... who is McRory?

That's literally the only reason why they are voting for Romney. You could have a fuging Mr. Potato head as the republican candidate, and they would still vote for him. He's a pretty shitty candidate and will be a bad president, and will probably pave the way for a Hillary Clinton presidency in 2016.

Anyway, I'm not voting. NC is already going to be a Romney win. I'd vote for Obama solely because we have less of a chance to go into Iran. Both are going to suck corporate cock and our economy will decline further, but at least Obama doesn't want a literal trillion dollar war machine and another war because we have to suck AIPAC's cock.
